Greece has begun work on a bill aimed at excluding terrorist organizations from parliament.
It has been in the news in the country’s press for a while that legal arrangements have been made to prevent the “Party of Greeks”, which was founded in 2020 by Ilias Kasidiaris, the former deputy of the racist and neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party, which Greece considers a terrorist organization, from entering Parliament.
It was said in the news that Kasidiaris might try to get this party into parliament through his cousin, who had the same name and surname.
Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in an interview with the newspaper “Proto Thema” at the end of the week, answered the question on this subject, “The political system must exhaust the room for maneuver provided by the constitution so that terrorist organizations are not represented in the Greek parliament.” He gave the answer.
At his regular weekly press conference on Monday, the government spokesperson, Yiannis Economou, said, “As the government, we must prevent the Supreme Court from designating terrorist organizations as candidate parties in the elections, within the possibilities that the constitution gives us. We will do so within the framework of the constitution.” He said.
Economou stated that the government expects support from other parties in this regard.
And the Kathimerini newspaper, in its news based on anonymous sources, stated that the evaluation made by the Supreme Court of the parties that will participate in the elections, whether they serve the free work of the system, will be expanded by the new legal regulation.
Accordingly, for the party to be a candidate in the elections, it will be checked whether the real leader or members of the party have been convicted of crimes such as belonging to a terrorist organization.
The Golden Dawn party, which brought Kasidiaris to the Greek Parliament, was recognized as a criminal organization by the Greek judiciary, and Kasidiaris was found guilty of founding a criminal organization and being a member of a criminal organization.
